As a Naturopath, my concern is the treatment of the whole person, rather than symptom management. The belief that we can secure our health by treating symptoms alone is a misconception. While palliation, the reduction of symptoms by treating the symptoms themselves, helps to lessen the symptoms, it does not address the underlying cause(s) of disease. It is when we begin to uncover the root cause of a disease, and address it, that we begin to transform our health.
Once we discover how to heal ourselves, we must learn how to maintain that health. Health is dynamic; it requires ongoing effort over the course of our lives. Yet, the maintenance of health is often overlooked in today’s busy and fast-paced world. While we are symptom free, it is important to be proactive about maintaining our health so we don’t discover one day that we have a chronic disease.
A healthy life begins with healthy roots. Whether you have been diagnosed with a disease or interested in disease prevention, I will support you as your health transforms to an optimal state.
I am an avid believer in the healing process of the human body when given the right environment and opportunity. I trust in the human body’s innate healing abilities. I have seen this first hand from a wound healing to a baby being born. Yet I know that as humans we are at risk for being hurt, whether physically, mentally, spiritually or emotionally. It is my goal in working with you that I may help you find those parts of you which need healing, and give you the necessary tools for healing to take place.
Each person is an individual and this guiding principle helps me tailor treatment recommendations specifically to you. My goal is to help you achieve optimal health through the use of safe and effective natural health care.
I provide on-going treatment recommendations for chronic health issues, as well as disease prevention strategies. My treatment goals focus on addressing the underlying cause of disease in addition to symptomatic relief. I enjoy seeing the whole family and welcome people of all ages to the clinic. I look forward to meeting you and helping you heal from the ground up.
